COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What began as mutual admiration between Sierra Nevada’s Grossman Family and Russian River’s Cilurzos has grown and progressed into genuine friendship. Brux began as an idea and has grown into something altogether different:

The liquid manifestation of change over time.

Refermented in the bottle with Brettanomyces bruxellensis, Brux will change and develop over time. Copper-colored, dry and complex, with slightly tart notes of green grass, pear, spice and lemon - this ale will progress in the bottle for many years.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2012 Bottle at dans, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks Man! Poured golden orange in appearance with a small off-white head. Fruity, citrusy, tangy, funk, light brett, light alcohol, a touch of pepper, some grapefruit, and phenols in the aroma. Really interesting aroma. Taste is white pepper, sweet fruits, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, light brett, and vanilla with a lightly tart finish. Medium mouthfeel with huge carbonation. Really smooth and well-balanced beer, easy to take down. Not quite what I expected, but nice, nonetheless.

Tastes wild, as the name of the beer hints... Wish it were a bit more sour. Not bad.

adnielsen (8970) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a cloudy orange appearance with a small white head. Bretty, pineapple, orange citrusy, fairly tart, vanilla, tangy aroma. Tangy, slightly vinous, orange, slightly tropical fruity, blood orange, tart flavor. Interesting but not nearly as good as some of Russian River’s offerings.

Scipio (686) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Pours a clear yet extremely carbonated golden with a bubbly white head. Tart aroma of apple, pear, banana, and some bread. The initial taste is sour and tart, so much so that it hides other flavors. After this settles, the fruity impressions, mostly apple and pear become apparent. The taste ends with potent sour finish that is long lasting. The sourness masks a great deal of the taste, which shouldn’t be a problem if you like sour. Calling this one dry would be an understatement. Bitter at the end as well. Carbonation is very fizzy and bubbly. Alcohol content is masked very well. If you like this style, you should enjoy this. However, I can’t label this among my favorites of these.

JulienHuxley (2991) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle. Dark gold pour white head. Pretty hoppy aroma, light brett but rather discreet, slightly metallic. Taste is bitter, lots of hops no real acidity surprising. Palate is well carbed, kind of dry. Not bad but not as good as I expected.

GT2 (8354) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 20, 2012
750mL thanks to Matt at Campdown Brewdown. Pours a clear orange with weak head formation. Nose is at first is volatile phenols and plastic moving to spicy Brett, small Orval character with ginger and minerals. Taste is minerally, sweeter, small diacetyl. Still young, little to no funk. Not very aerated in the palate. Still needs a diacetyl rest to let the Brett clean up.

Ernest (6187) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), moderately yeasty (cobwebs, barnyard), with notes of lemon, gum, band-aid, pepper. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Pretty nice stuff...a "clean" kinda wildness, but in a good way. A little restrained as far as character goes, but enjoyable nonetheless.
